Bff AND FEDERAL
Woodruff Scores Surveyor of
Customs for Blocking Trial
of Policeman
TO CARRY MATTER UP
The failure of two United States cus
toms guards to testify against a patrol
man before tho- Civil Berviee Commis
sion today led to a severe criticism of
Charles H, Kurtz, surveyor of customs,
.by Clinton Rogers Woodruff, president
of thc commission. '
Patrolman John Philips, of the Front
and Master streets station, was accused
of threatening a guard, using profane
language and of having two quarts of
whisky in his possession. The offenses
were alleged to have occurred May 5
at I'ier No. 10, north wharves.
The Civil 8ervicc Commission on May
18 requested Mr. Kurtz to Instruct thc
guards to appear at Phillips' hearing
today. Mr. Kurtz replied by letter that
the patrolman had apologized and that
the Incident was closed so far as thc
customs service was concerned.
Tho commission today found Phillips
guilty of an additional charge of being
absent without leave. He was fined
seventeen days' pay.
In announcing that ho would lay the
case before the Secretary ot the Treas
ury because of the failure of the guards
to appear, Mr. Woodruff made public
this letter, dated yesterday, ami sent to
Mr. Kurtz:
"We are in receipt of your letter of
May 27 in which you refuse to instruct
Andrew A. Brophy, captain of customs
guards, and Guard Meiers, in your de
partment, to appear before the Civil
Henrico Commission.
"You speak of Patrolman Phillips
having apologized to Guard Meiers for
die languoge used, but this does not
dNposc of thc charges against him of
conduct unbecoming an office. The
commission is not sitting to hear pri
vate wrongs of individuals in the Fed
eral or other service, but to try charges
against members of the Police nnd Fire
Bureaus for unbecoming conduct and
for conduct subversive of good discipline
and of sound morale.
"Your failure to co-operate with us in
enforcing sound discipline and good
morale, not to mention the discourtesy
Involved in your action, is most regret
table. "In the judgment of thc commission.
the gravity of your refusal to co-operate
increased by reason of the duty and
obligation resting upon the Federal of
ficers to secure the enforcement of the
laws regarding the sale of liquor."
RAPS ONE-PIECE SUITS

Atlantic City, .Tune 1. Proclama
tion by Mayor Edward I. Bader that

"Ah one who hns worked for the up
lift of not only Atlantic City, but the
State as well, I jvish to protest against
a permission of this kind. Even under
the worst conditions which Atlantic
Citv has had in thc past one-piece
bathing suits were not allowed on our
beach, and why snouia tney noc oniy

"Unfortunately for our young peo

you give your official permission.
Mrs. White also announces her in

Cook,, engineer of the Now York
Atlantic City excursion train, by tho

nnd that no over-ran n "stop" signal
to the rear of thc local train.
The report added that Cook should

thc production in our fields is, in our
opinion, a subject for mutual considera
tion."
In reply to that letter Mr. Brophy
snid :
"If your purpose Is to ask for a re
duction in wage scales, as is intimated
in the various press notices emanating
from Altoona, a conference would be
useless, because the position of. District
No. 2 is tho position taken by our na
tional organization, that our present
contracts are binding, that they wero
established by thc United States Bitu
minous Coal Commission, acting for the
Government, hnd that they must con
tinue until March 31, 1022."
President Brophy yesterday said the
position of District No. 2 had tho sun-
port of the international officers, in
cluding President John L. Lewis, who
bod written mm that the international
organization would co-operate in every
way In "protecting the integrity
of the wage agreement.

tournament wns begun here today with
out any of the ten American golfers
who had entered appearing for the start.

gram at the last minute.

who competed there, with the possible
exception of "Chick" Evans, who had
left for France, would take part in thc

championship now in progress there,
while other of the competitors stated
they would sail for homo this week.

STEAMSHIP IN DISTRESS
Asquam Wireless Olvee Position Off
t Winter Quarter Light,
Somewhere in tho Atlantic Ocean, a
thousand rnlles stralaht off Winter
Quarter Light, the Shipping Board
steamship Asquam Is wallowing in the
seas, waiting for a tow to brine her Into
port.
The wireiese, ranging the ocean for
aia, Drougnc word ot the ship's distress
to tho big navy station at Cape May,
whence it was relayed to the Philadel
phia Navy Yard.
Though thejnesaaire said the Aiuinnm
needed help, it did not indicate thc
cause of the trouble, nor state whether
any one naa hoen killed or injured.
ino message was picked up at 2:83
o'clock this moraine. It was: "R. S.
Asquam In lat. 37.48 N., Ion. 03.30 W
no steam at nu. .Need assistance. Must
be towed."
It is surmised there had been an ac
cident .in the freighter's boiler room.
It is unlikely that help will bo sent
from this port, as the message would
have been picked up by ships at .sea
near the Asquam. Thc Asquam was in
Baltimore as recently as May 10, but
the Maritime Exchange has no infor
mation as to its cargo or destination.

ably take definite action."
Mr. Becber's decision to remain for
the present leaves thc Board of Judges
with two vacancies to fill at tho meet
